I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.

I am so sad to hear of the passing of this legendary funny lady. I had the pleasure of mall shopping on Tuesday with a podcast of this interview in my ear buds. She struck me as sweet despite having a sort of madness that comes from spending her entire adult life in show business. Boy was she a storyteller, and this interview is bursting with stories; stories that on this day of her passing are especially touching and capture a woman and an era. Keep your ears alert to the part where she talks about taking acting classes with Marlon Brando and Kirk Douglas. Also, may I note that Alec Baldwin has a fantastic voice for radio and is a splendid interviewer, especially of his on-screen mother from 30 Rock. Too cute that she calls him “Alex” and he doesn’t dare correct her. Sending love and gratitude to the sassiest angel I can imagine. 

Tonight I deep googled Lena Dunham and watched a bunch of interviews on youtube, and it has left me feeling totally not awkward and inspired to liberate my secret strangeness (yes friends, there are many levels of strangeness that you’ve never seen). This interview was a special jewel because of her early morning mention of genitals. 

In case you were wondering what this blog is about…mostly I just reblog moderately feminist things that Amy Pohler’s Smart Girls at the Party posts with some interspersed random acts of cuteness. So really this blog is a sneak peak inside my mind: feminist cuteness. Apparently I’m a very cool middle schooler trapped inside the body and responsibilities of a 27 year old. 

It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America.

This is one of my favorite quotes about sexualization/objectification vs autonomy of female bodies bc it’s so succinct
